Daycare drop off tips

Hey guys! My 19 month old son is just starting day care this week. He is having a pretty tough time at drop offs as he is now figuring out that I am going to leave. It's his first time in a child care setting so I know it's really tough for him to adjust. Any tips for a smooth transition? TIA!

Night weaning

Any advice on night weaning? My son sometimes can self sooth during the night, but most of the time he needs a bottle to get back to sleep. He is up more now at 10 months compared to when he was 2 months! I know there’s a strong bottle to sleep association going on. I gave him a bottle of water last night (or else he would’ve drank a days worth of milk if I let him). Seems to be more of a bottl... More

10 month old slapping constantly!

Any advice on teaching a 10 month old the meaning of “No”? Particularly for hitting? He slaps me in the face all of the time playing. He hit me in the eye last week and scratched my cornea 😫 Saying “no” doesn’t make a difference no matter what tone I use. I’m all for positive parenting and want to stick to that type of approach. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I feel like I am just reinforcing him waking up by g... More

Lol I know I’m overthinking it, but I worry about his ears popping and him being anxious or bored, changing... More


Considering Montessori school for my son when he is of age (18 months). I’ve been researching the heck out of it, and I am super interested. Anyone have any experience with Montessori schools? Especially with a toddler?

7 month old night time separation anxiety?

My 7 month old son keeps waking nonstop in the middle of the night screaming this high-pitched loud screech. He’s been doing it since he was six months old. He will have some nights where he will sleep five or six hours and then go right back into this pattern of waking up every 2 to 3 hours. He will even wake up between those times and cry, but self soothe himself back to sleep. But he always... More
